Although MSIG’s listed prices of travel insurance plans may seem daunting at first glance, there is usually a promotion to keep their prices competitive, such as the current 60% discount on Single trip plans and 20% off Annual plans. This offer ends on 30 September 2019.
As long as the continuation is 60%, I would say it’s worth buying travel insurance from MSIG. Price is competitive against different travel insurance plans here in Singapore.
